When it comes to keeping the flame of traditional New Orleans jazz, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is a city (and state) institution. Founded in the 1960s, the PHJB is a flexible combination of surviving old-time practitioners and younger players faithful to the sounds of King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, and the other lesser-known giants of N'awlins jazz. MADE IN NEW ORLEANS is a limited edition, decades-spanning box set including a CD, DVD, seven-inch vinyl record, and photographs. The highlights range from the Creole tune "Eh Lah Bah," sung by local trad jazz legends Billie and De De Pierce, to a jolly cover of the 1971 Kinks song "Complicated Life" to the excellent concert footage on the DVD. MADE is a virtual treasure trove for serious devotees of both the PHJB and New Orleans culture.
